Monday, April 06, is expected to be the busiest day of the Easter weekend on the N3 Toll Route.

This was announced in a statement from the N3TC Sunday.

“High traffic volumes are expected northbound (towards Gauteng) on the N3 Toll Route between 11h00 and 21h00 on Monday, 6 April 2015. Busy traffic conditions may prevail on Tuesday, 7 April but will taper off from late afternoon with normal traffic patterns likely to set in again from 18h00 on Tuesday,” the statement read.

To maximise traffic accommodation and general route safety, emergency satellite stations have been set up in key locations.

The N3TC advised motorists to plan their trips in advance, and pack extra supplies in case of delays.

“Please exercise patience in heavy traffic, keep a safe following distance and take regular rest stops in order to stay alert. Keep headlights switched-on throughout the day to be more visible to oncoming traffic.”

N3TC plazas would function at full capacity during this busy period.
